FLOSSMOOR | At its monthly meeting, the Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School School District 233 School Board welcomed new member, Tim Wenckus, of Homewood, on Sept. 17.
Wenckus has replaced Andrew Lindstrom, who resigned after six years of service.
Wenckus holds a master's degree in chemistry from DePaul University and currently works as a technical manager in an engineering office with Rexam Beverage Can in Chicago. His work experience also includes living and working in Japan for three years. Closer to home, he has been very involved in coaching girls' softball. He will be serving on the board in Lindstrom's place through spring 2015. He and his wife, Rebecca, are parents to two Homewood-Flossmoor High School students — Julia and Jane — and one future Viking: Josie.
"Tim’s critical-thinking skills and ability to work collaboratively will be a true asset as he assumes this important role for our community," said Von Mansfield, superintendent. "As a Viking parent, he understands the importance of maintaining our tradition of academic excellence, along with innovative programming, to help students reach their full potential."
Current board members for District 233 — in addition to Wenckus — are: President Rick Lites, Vice President Dr. David Mayer, Dr. John Farrell, Jeanne McInerney-Lubeck, Gerald Pauling and Jody Scariano.
